Postcards from the Belgian coast

Today, the sun was shining and the sky was a deep blue. It was perfect weather for going to the beach. De Panne is a Belgian  beach town located very close the the French border. By car, it is a little over an hour from Lille. We arrived just in time for lunch and had croquettes and moules frites on a terrace on the main road just one block from the beach. After lunch, we rented some beach chairs and a parasol and then spent a long time digging in the sand and dipping our toes in the North Sea. And there were stripes, everywhere! They really made the beach quite charming.

  2. Lovely pictures! remind me of our holidays as kids… I don’t remember the weather being so nice though ;)

  3. Love the photos. This looks so charming.

  4. Fabulous photos! Our family was in Italy earlier this summer and I fell in love with the beach clubs – all those stripes in a rainbow of colors!!!
